Chic Hawaiian Luau Inspiration Board

A few weeks ago, a sweet reader named Jennifer emailed me about doing a custom inspiration board for her birthday party this summer. She wanted a Hawaiian theme, but without the kitsch associated with luau parties. 
When I think of a chic Hawaiian themed birthday for an woman, I think of three colors--hot pink, orange, and lime green. 
There are so many ways to keep this party elegant and fabulous!
I can't wait to see what Jennifer comes up with for her party in June!
And, why does Hawaii always remind me of that episode of the Brady Bunch where they go to Hawaii and they are cursed by the Tiki?
